Re: Light Rail Systems And Routes In Other Cities

We need Dave to give us a summary of his thoughts on The Hop. I'm mildly skeptical because its a couplet with a directional change (N/S to E/W) but I also don't really know the layout of Milwaukee. It just causes me to think of Cincy which has struggled.

Re: New Downtown YMCA

According to the Collison article "dramatic two-story windows will be inserted along Central Street to bring in natural light and provide a contemporary look to the exterior". That and the existence in both the current building and the renderings of small first story windows and a door toward the f...

I'd argue that keeping that piece goes a long way towards maintaining ...

Note too the greenspace behind the building that isn't really sure what it wants to be. The whole project is a bit of a head scratcher.

Re: Misc Crossroads News

I'd be interested in a little more interaction with the corner, especially on Grand. But, of course, this is pretty cool. Just nitpicking because that's what we do here.

It will look nice as a visual termination of Nichols which I assume we will be pedestrianizing soon. :-|

There are lots of other improvements I'd like to see done before that anyways. The main one being a redo of the north lawn
Exactly. Always wanted that lawn to look like Versailles, the one in France, not Missouri.
City Park in Versailles, MO is fancier than the north lawn

As for a newer restaurant wonder how Kobi Q is doing, i remember going by on a Weds at like 8:15 pm and the place was dark Not encouraging. Hours listed to 9:30pm.

Re: Trees in KC (ongoing)

So I noticed the other day they chopped down the trees in front of City Center facing Main leaving about a 1' stump sticking out of the iron planter cover. Is the plan to re-do the sidewalks or something or did the City just decide to kill some innocent trees? Same thing along Delaware in River Mar...

Re: Postcards From the Edge of Time

Light wells for light and ventilation were common before modern HVAC and lighting. No one wanted an office/desk far from a window. Now due to the former and also desire for larger floor plates these often get filled in. Another example is the old NY Life bldng(catholic diocese). I knew light wells ...
